“On a scala of 1 to 10 --- this ones around 8/9”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Had a lovely meal here and could not fault it. Good choice (we had the chateaubriand) and good prices. Would recommend it to anyone eating in Kololi but I just wish the restaurants stocked better quality wines as the ones offered are usually middle of the road plonk. Don't let this put you off though as you soon get used to them!

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

It was our first time at this restaurant. The food was outstanding. It was nice that the chef visited every table to see if people were happy with the food, nice touch. Service was good, a good selection on the menu. Would definitely recommend.

“Garden setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Food lovely - probably one of the best. Can't fault place, food or service. Quietly sophisticated but lacked atmosphere that exists in other restaurants..

“Far and away the best restaurant in Kololi....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We tried this place on our 2nd to last night of our holiday after someone told us he had been here for 3 nights on the run for the same meal each time (prawn curry). Absolutely gutted that we waited until then before going there. This place is superb! Run by a Danish lady (not Dutch as someone below thought, I asked her) and she is so passionate about her restaurant, it really shows. It shines through in her Gambian staff too. Most other restaurants in The Gambia the staff soft-shoe shuffle about, not here, they almost run. The service is superb. The much metioned prawn curry is out of this world. Massive bowl with loads of delicious fresh king prawns and rice. Complimentary bread and garlic butter served as a starter. My wife had the lasagne and said that it was delicious. They are also one of the few places that sells draught Julbrew too.
The bill was amazing too, the two meals, and about 3 or 4 drinks each about £20! The same price as 'ordinary' restaurants down the road. Went again on our last night. This will be our first stop next time. My wife said she could happily eat here every night working her way through the menu :-) Try it, you'll love it.

“Nice buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I only went on a Sunday night and it was the buffet-grill. Lots of choice of steak; chicken; pork; prawns; fish and sausage with a good range of rice; salads and dips.
